Mussels WIP

Mussels

We went away for a couple of days and stayed in a very nice rental house right on the foreshore of Sultana Point (just outside Edithburgh) on the Yorke Peninsula. Kind of an experiment to see how we managed with the kids and to look at the house (which was fantastic, definitely travelling like this again). I took my Inktense pencils because I’m art crazy at the moment and I knew that there would be a moment to do something. Unfortunately I forgot to bring a stock shot to work from for any of my current projects. So I found myself wandering across the beach on a 39C day looking for shells to draw.

Autumn wind, my current WIP for Paint Party Friday

I’ve been so madly arting of late that I haven’t had time to post! But here is a quickie in honour of Paint Party Friday because that is what I’ve been doing – painting. I’ve been exploring my acrylics. I guess you could call this piece a big acrylic experiment because it has very much been a ‘let’s see what happens if I do this’ kind of painting.

So I scribbled down a sketch to answer that and incidently my first Sunday Sketches in a long time.

Izzy's accordian book cover

Handmade accordian books

I’ve found a new interest – handmade books. In particular, for the moment, accordian books. Along side this discovery I’ve also discovered handcarved stamps and heavily layered work (something I’ve admired a lot recently, but haven’t really tried much myself).

15 minutes a day – Create

I did more than 15 minutes of course. It was a public holiday here today and Hubby was home so between the both of us we juggled the kids and necessary tasks. Also, because I wasn’t running around madcap all day, I actually had some energy to spare for my art. So, no pressure and damn any mistakes or wonkiness, I just did art.

Well, I suppose you could call it that.
